Hedvig Mollestad Thomassen er en norsk guitarist, komponist og improvisator, der er aktiv i både hardrock- og jazzscenerne. Hun leder sin egen trio med bassist Ellen Brekken og trommeslager Ivar Joe Bjørnstad og har samarbejdet med jazz- og rockartister. For hvert album, som Hedvig Mollestad Trio udgiver, forsøger kritikerne at finde en passende genre til den tryllebindende og kompromisløse musik, som trioen spiller. Er det jazz eller rock? Er det Stonerswing? Eller måske doom jazz? Classic Rock Magazine kom måske nærmest: Jazz Sabbath. Hedvig Mollestad Trio er Mahavishnus og Black Sabbaths kærlighedsbarn! Eller var det Terje Rypdal og King Crimson? Det er lige meget – det er musik, der får dig til at kaste hænderne i vejret, grine fra øre til øre eller måske smile skægt, mens du nipper til en kold øl og tænker, at nu er livet godt!
Københavnske math-rock trioen Cyano, der sparker døren ind med et smil på læben og leverer skæve taktarter, tunge riffs og hæsblæsende underholdning for hele familien starter aftenen ud.

Koncerten er en del af Vinterjazz Festival.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio:
Only nine months after her momentous debut solo album Ekhidna, the guitarist is back fronting her trio. With their previous album, Smells Funny, this explosive and expansive trio experienced a breakthrough of sorts, having gone from strength to strength through five albums since their 2011 debut Shoot!, gathering respect from both rock and jazz camps, sharing big stages with the likes of John McLaughlin and Black Sabbath, and being equally comfortable on jazz and rock stages. Hedvig enforced this breakthrough with Ekhidna, appearing on both jazz and rock best of 2020 lists, like coming in third in Prog´s “Album of the Year” poll. She was included in Downbeat´s “25 for the future” and received heaps of international attention and great reviews.

With the hypnotic title track, the spacious ballad Four Candles and generally a more varied mood, Ding Dong. You´re Dead. is the trio´s most dynamic album to date. That said there´s still enough solid and creative riffing here to satisfy the headbangers, as well as the jazzheads, as they further explore the free and open landscapes most notably started with their Black Stabat Mater album and continued with Smells Funny.

As Nate Chinen wrote about "Black Stabat Mater" in JazzTimes: Her trio, which has Ellen Brekken on bass and Ivar Loe Bjørnstad on drums, caught my ear then with its audacious style references: the loose swagger of early Black Sabbath; the density and prowl of peak Led Zeppelin; the expeditionary urge of Jimi Hendrix; the incantatory fervor of John McLaughlin.

As recent performances have shown, online and in the flesh, this trio radiates confidence and have become a surefire hit on the Norwegian live scene. And while we rightly praise Hedvig´s exceptional abilities, let´s not forget how important the rhythm section is to make it all work so well. Ellen Brekken is an accomplished bassist, driving the band just as hard on the electric bass as on the acoustic. Then there´s Ivar Loe Bjørnstad, not your regular rock drummer, not your regular jazz drummer, but in possession of the loose swagger mentioned above.

Hedvig first picked up her mother´s acoustic guitar at ten, before discovering a whole new world through her father´s jazz and rock record collection as a teenager. She was given her first electric guitar and amplifier as a confirmation present. Hedvig met Ellen and Ivar at the Music Academy in Oslo and asked them to join her after she received the Young Jazz Talent of the Year award at Molde International Jazzfestival in 2009. They have stayed together since, and all previous albums have been released on Rune Grammofon; Shoot! (2011), All Of Them Witches (2013), Enfant Terrible (2014), Black Stabat Mater (2016), Evil In Oslo (2016) and Smells Funny (2018), all to wide international acclaim.
